Building Back Better:
What This Means in Terms of ESG
Thursday, July 15, 2021
Hamilton Lakes, 500 Park Blvd, Itasca (Outdoors)
One third of professionally managed assets, representing nearly $30 trillion in value, are subject to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria. But what does that mean for the real estate assets WE manage? Attend our first in-person luncheon of the year as we look to answer:
- What is Environmental Social Governance?
- How you can protect your owners and shareholders.
- How ESG can improve tenant satisfaction.
- How to leverage ESG goals to be more proactive, productive, and profitable.
- 11:30 - 12:00: Registration, networking, and box lunches/refreshments
- 12:00 - 1:00: Lunch program
- 1:00 - 1:30: Extra networking time with colleagues and friends
When entering the property, please park on the upper level of the two-level garage and enter through the main lobby where the "500 Park" sign is located. An overflow surface lot parking is located on the east side of the parking garage where lawn signs will direct you to the picnic location on the lake side of the building.
